Update to Parents, May 1, 2015
 

Dear Parents and Guardians –

Last week we communicated information about an inquiry into Hampton-Dumont Community School District’s policies on curricular and noncurricular clubs. Since that time, we have worked with our attorney to confirm that our current club policies meet legal requirements.

Based on that review, we will be revisiting our current policies to clarify and strengthen the definitions of curricular and noncurricular clubs. We recognize some of the language and information could be improved. The changes will allow us to apply the policies to all clubs consistently. Both curricular and noncurricular activities have a place at Hampton-Dumont. Updating our policies will simply provide guidance on how they operate.

This process will require input from different parties and a vote of approval by the school board. It is our hope to have this process completed for the 2015-16 school year. When complete, we will inform clubs of their status and work with them to understand the new definitions and requirements.

As you know, our goal is to provide our students with educational opportunities both in and outside of the classroom. Updating these policies will help us to deliver on that mission.

Thank you and enjoy the weekend.

Todd D. Lettow Superintendent 

 


 

Estimados padres y tutores -

La semana pasada comunicamos información sobre una investigación de las pólizas del Distrito Escolar de la comunidad de Hampton-Dumont en los clubes curriculares y no curriculares. Desde entonces, hemos trabajado con nuestro abogado para confirmar que nuestras pólizas actuales para los club cumplen con los requisitos legales.

En base de esa revisión, vamos a volver a visitar nuestras pólizas actuales para aclarar y fortalecer las definiciones de clubes curriculares y no curriculares. Reconocemos que algo del lenguaje y información podría mejorar. Los cambios nos permitirán aplicar las pólizas a todos los clubes de forma coherente. Ambas actividades curriculares y no curriculares tienen un lugar en Hampton-Dumont. Actualización de nuestras pólizas simplemente proporcionar orientación sobre la forma en que operan.

Este proceso requerirá el aporte de diferentes partidos y un voto de aprobación por el consejo escolar. Tenemos la esperanza de tener este proceso completado para el año escolar 2015-16. Cuando se haya completado, se le informará a los clubes de su estado y trabajaremos con ellos para entender las nuevas definiciones y requisitos.

Como ustedes saben, nuestro objetivo es proporcionar a nuestros estudiantes las oportunidades educativas dentro y fuera del salón de clases. La actualización de estas pólizas nos ayudará a cumplir esa misión.

Gracias y disfrute del fin de semana!

Todd D. Lettow Superintendente
